GIVEAWAY and Review: Who Are You & What Have You Done with My Kid?
There is a strange land where children live between childhood and adulthood. Being a tween and parenting a tween has its challenges. Who Are You & What Have You Done with My Kid? helps parents connect with their child during this time of life. As children they cling to their parents, but upon reaching their tweens they begin pulling away and seeking independence.
As the book states, parents put emphasis on the dangers of the ‘real’ world their kids will face, the responsibilities they’ll have to handle, the importance of academics, etc. But they often forget about the emotional aspect of growing up.
The book maps out the four changes tweens experience:
· Their brains are changing
· They’re experiencing new emotions
· They’re becoming more self-aware
· They’re learning how to express themselves.
Dr. Craig offers parents with children approaching their tween/teen years good advice to help them connect with and empathize with their child. It’s a win-win for both parent and child.
